From the instigator

The inception

Hej, I'm Rikard. Combining my love for reduced Scandinavian design and passion for nature, the idea for ØESTE was born off the Portuguese coast.

I have found a local Portuguese production team who share my appreciation for sustainable clothing. Thankfully they also thought lyocell was the best match for our line of underwear.

The antiquity

After leaving a traditional corporate career behind in 2012, I have initiated several startups related to clothing, events and nightlife. Some are still around.

ØESTE is a small underwear brand. I hope it will inspire a smiling band of friends and bring a new generation of underwear and our values forward!

Ever since, and for the years to come.

Väl mött,
Rikard
